S our little book comes into your hands, we
ask only this — that you accept it as a first
venture. There are mistakes, but we do not
apologize for them. Whatever editorial sins are
chargeable to us may be attributed to lack of ex-
perience rather than to indifference or carelessness.
All that can be said for those errors is that we hope
future editors of "The Summer Student" may be
warned of the pitfalls.
Ours has been a pleasing task. To dwell upon the
purple patches, to reflect within this little memorial
something of the joys and interests of the summer
student — this is our purpose. As to how well we have
succeeded, you are to be the judge. If aught within
these pages is commendable, if these reminiscenses
are rich and full, then our task has been fulfilled.
But if there should arise such pleasant memories at
Old Miami that another summer calls you back
again, then are we more than content.
And now we submit the first fruits of our handiwork
to you. Proceed, reader — the judgment is yours.

Words and Music by Hubert Conarroe
Thy campus shade invites us;
Calling us from afar,
"Come where the halls of knowledge,
Bright, cool and pleasant are.*'
Dear Old Miami, all thy campus shade is mine;
Thronging with friendships more enduring far than time.
Truest and best of all the friendships here is thine;
And thoughts of thee ever bring to me
Fond memories of thy summer clime.
Long as we search for wisdom,
Long as we seek for truth,
Still shall Miami lead us on
Into perpetual youth.

ITH the seventeen years of rich history back of it, Miami University Summer School
offered its students superior advantages in summer-school work. The faculty was made
up of professors who serve in the University throughout the year and teachers of equal
training from other colleges. The work required of students in summer school for a semester
hour of credit was the same as that required in the standard colleges during the regular academic
semester; thus all credits received in the Miami summer term are guaranteed recognition in other
colleges of higher education.
The students and faculty, realizing that it is difficult to get the true spirit of a school in such a
short time, put forth every effort to create a wholesome school spirit during the summer session.
The activities of the school were open to every one, and a purely democratic spirit prevailed.
Many counties and states were represented, but all land divisions were forgotten in the demo-
cratic atmosphere which characterized the campus activities. With such a spirit the summer
school had to be a success.
The end of the summer term came upon us before we were scarcely adjusted to our new environ-
ment. The days of the term hardly paused on their mad flight into the past, and each setting of
the sun brought us still closer to the end of the term. But our time, though short it seemed,
was not spent in vain. The friendships formed here will last forever. The lessons learned in
the class-room will be a basis of our choices in the years to come. The games on the lawn, the
calm shades and venerable trees, the wide stretches of greensward, and the beautiful buildings
will be a sacred memory to all those who attended summer school at Miami in the summer of 1920.

It had been tried and proved at Miami that girls could be trusted. As a result of this, the students
elected representatives from the various halls and cottages during the early part of the term.
These served as house-chairmen of their groups and made up the organization known as the
Students' Council. It stood for self-government especially in all matters relating to personal
conduct. It was their aim to direct the activities and to promote the social life of the students.
This organization would not have been so successful had it not been for the kind assistance of
Dean Habekost and the splendid co-operation of all the girls.

The Young Women's Christian Association is an organization known everywhere for its helpful-
ness. Such was its spirit at Miami, due to the co-operation of all the girls.
It began its work the very first day of the term by meeting the girls at the trains and looking
after their comfort. The first week came the Y. M.-Y. W. mixer out on the triangle. There
were songs and speeches and games and especially ice-cream cones very much in evidence. The
next social event was the girls' prom. Some of the girls made it more fantastic by appearing in
costume. And wherever there are girls there must be candy. Thus came into existence the
Y. W. C. A. Chocolate Shop, with all of its goodies. Not to be forgotten were the porch parties,
where the girls really got to know each other. But the aims of the Y. W. C. A. were not only
to provide the social life of the students, but also for the spiritual life as well. Every Thursday
evening religious meetings were held. Many of the girls enjoyed this splendid work, which was
under the direction of Miss Habekost, Y. W. C. A. Secretary, and the first cabinet. The follow-
ing program was carried out during the term:

THE Philharmonic Club, a mixed chorus of ninety voices, presented "Esther," a sacred
cantata, as a regular number of the summer course. The presentation of a cantata during
the summer session marks a feature previously unprecedented by such an organization.
Heretofore the club has furnished music only for the McGuffey Day program.
Professor Aubrey W. Martin, the director, possesses marked experience and ability in choral
directing. The success of musical organizations during the regular session has been brought
about largely by his skill. Credit also is due the members of the club for their perseverance and
effort during the warm summer evenings. With the rendition of such a program, the Philharmonic
Club has reached a high mark in its career.
The scene is laid in ancient Persia about 500 B. C. Esther, a Jewess, who has been an orphan
from infancy, was adopted by Mordecai, her cousin. He, recognizing her natural beauty, trained
her in the accomplishments of highest womanhood. Ahasuerus, King of the Realm, chose her
to be his wife and Queen, not knowing her nationality. Haman, the friend and favorite of the
King, unmindful of the relation of Mordecai and Esther, hated Mordecai because he would not
worship him as the King had commanded. Seeking revenge for this, Haman obtains a decree
for destroying all the Jews of the Provinces. Mordecai discovers the plot and charges the Queen
to intercede in behalf of her people. This she does at the risk of her life, since by law no one
shall go unto the King unbidden. The King hears her petition and Haman is hanged on the
gallows which he has prepared for Mordecai's death. Mordecai is made ruler in Haman's place
and the people rejoice.

CELIA GRACE CARROLL
Instructor in Physical Education
ONE of the most enjoyable as well as
instructive features of the work this
summer has been the course in physical
education. It is designed for teachers who
direct recreational activities during the school
year. It also gives the students such in-
struction as will enable them to conserve
their health by intelligent attention to the
laws of hygiene.
The physical education students have been
divided into two groups; one a class in formal
gymnastics, the other a class in dancing,
plays and games.
One hundred and fifteen girls have been en-
rolled this term. In spite of the hot weather,
they have been very enthusiastic over the
work and it has proven to be a source of
delightful recreation each day.

The Story-Tellers League has been maintained during summer school for many years. It was
originally organized by Mrs. Richards, who has worked to keep up an interest in it year after
year. The meetings are held on each Tuesday evening out of doors. The program consists of
stories, songs, dances, plays, and demonstrations of methods of teaching these. The purposes
of the organization are to stimulate an interest in children's literature, to arouse enthusiasm for
expression through speech and gesture, and to secure an interchange of opinion among the teachers
with regard to literary material for the grades. Anyone who has something to contribute is
cordially invited to take part. The following program is characteristic of the delightful hours
spent in Story-Tellers League this summer:
Story in Song Stella Godshaw
"The Teeny Tiny Lady" Lenore Egan
"The Valiant Chattee Maker" Fannie Beckett
"The Lion and the Jackal" Edith Ammerman
"The Donkey's Well" . Sara Greer
Benjamin Harrison Scudder
Associate Professor of Education
MIAMI encourages play as well as work
among her summer students. The
games have a twofold purpose. First,
they provide exercise and recreation for the
students while they are in attendance. The
fact that they are played on a beautiful green
campus adds much to their delight. In the
second place, they give a knowledge of play-
ing and conducting games, which is of great
importance in managing a school.
Group games, such as schlog, indoor base-ball
(played out of doors), captain ball, volley
ball, newcomb, and minor ones constitute the
greater number played. In addition to these
games, tennis and base-ball are very popular

A Masque by Dr. Upham
AN extra feature number was added to the summer-school entertainment program.
Dr. Upham's masque, "Tricolor," made its initial appearance Friday, July 23rd, in the
open-air theatre on the campus. The whole was acted and danced entirely by summer-
school students. Everybody was pleased to have the opportunity of witnessing this presentation.
"Tricolor" is a combination of melodrama and rich comedy, with a poetic and fairy-like back-
ground in which gnomes quarrel and moonbeams dance. A gnome, Redcap, the principal charac-
ter, is an idealistic Bolshevist. He fights between his ideas of proposed equality through destruc-
tion and his love for Lucia, a doll, representative of the Light.
The production was both interesting and amusing.
The following is the cast of characters:

•HE chief function of the Department of Industrial Education is to train teachers of In-
dustrial Arts and Drawing. Two curricula are offered, a two-year curriculum leading to
a diploma and a four-year curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in edu-
cation. Students taking either curriculum may specialize in work for the elementary school,
the junior high school, the senior high school, or the vocational school.
Graduates of the department are located in all parts of Ohio and in many other states. The
great need of the department is more students; graduates readily find good positions, and the
demand for teachers of Industrial Arts far exceeds the supply.
In training teachers for the elementary school, the work is based on the educational principle
that children need many concrete experiences in the early stages of learning; the most fertile
field for providing these experiences is found in the activities of the arts and industries.
In training for teaching in the junior high school, the spirit of amateur production, which is a
dominant motive in the nature of the early adolescent child, is made the basis for the industrial
arts projects. To a great extent conditions of the modern home and the highly specialized
methods of production make it almost impossible for the boy especially to work out industrial
arts projects outside of the school shop.
Likewise teachers for the senior high school and for vocational positions are thoroughly trained
for their work; theory follows rather than precedes practical shop work.
All courses arc organized along lines of the most modern educational thought.
WALLACE R. McCONNELL, A. M.
Professor of Geography
THE vicinity of Oxford is remarkably rich
in material suitable for nature study.
Few localities have a greater variety of
plant life, more remarkable records of past
geological ages, or more numerous streams,
hills and dales.
Practical application of the various sciences
is emphasized at Miami, in addition to the
more technical features. Local topography
and map construction are important features
of the geography hikes. The class is here
shown studying the work of a stream and the
results of glaciation in the vicinity of Oxford.

N account of the scarcity of teachers it has become necessary for many former teachers to
return to the profession, even though they have acquired the mighty prefix of "Mrs."
Realizing the great need of the youth of our country, these teachers have again entered
the ranks. Many have sacrificed home ties and obligations in order to meet their country's
need, and are willing to spend a period that is usually required for rest and recreation, here at
Miami in study, so that they may be informed on the newest and best methods of the times.
This "Back to the School-room Movement," is attracting the attention of superintendents and
former teachers everywhere in the United States.
This photo shows that Miami is well represented in the movement.
A few summers ago one married woman attended Miami Teachers' College and there was con-
siderable curiosity aroused as to her intentions. Now she is a necessity, not a curiosity.

THESE are students from Montgomery County, the county that, with its cash registers, sim-
plifies money matters for the whole wide world. The members of this group are determined
to get all out of life that they possibly can. At Miami they get knowledge that they expect
to use to the best advantage in the future, and along with the knowledge they get pleasure, for
they are alive in every respect.
If a lively debate is given in the auditorium, Montgomery County students help make it lively.
If a lively social time is planned, her students are pushing it. They will keep on leading and
boosting until every one falls in line.
If it's a Wright Airplane you admire,
If it's a National Cash Register you require,
If it's a Maxwell Motor Car you desire,
Or a Dayton Bicycle with a tire;
If for a Davis Sewing Machine you've a buyer,
If your home with Delco Light you'd attire,
If you want a teacher just a little spryer,
Then send MONTGOMERY COUNTY a wire.
We're proud we're from Hamilton County,
The wonderful land of our dreams,
With its golden fields of rip'ning grain,
Where the Great Miami gleams.
Who dares to deny we are famous?
In Presidents we take the lead.
Since hist'ry is always repeated,
We're confident now to succeed.
Old Cincy, the gate to the Southland,
Is found in this county so great;
With Taft's home and Harrison's birthplace,
We're honored throughout all the State.
We're proud we're from Hamilton County,
For it is the best of all places.
You see this at Dear Old Miami —
Just watch the look on our faces.
Three cheers then for Hamilton County !
The county we've learned to adore.
We hope that thy fame and thy glory
Will live on with thee evermore.

ARKE County had a larger representation than usual at Miami this summer. It was very
active in student organizations, being represented on the Student Council by Madeline
Dawson, Norma Chenoweth and Marie Hiatt; on the staff of the Summer Student, by
Anna Lee Mains, Arland Dohner and Tom Wenrick. Miss Mains was also a member of the
program committee of the Story-Tellers League. Nina Brumbaugh and Norma Chenoweth
were members of the Philharmonic Club. Prof. J.J. Bliss of Arcanum, one of the most able
and progressive schoolmen of Darke County, was a member of the summer school faculty. Under
the able chairmanship of Jesse Rush, Darke County students presented a clever stunt, depicting
the Democratic Convention at San Francisco, as a part of the celebration on the fifth of July.
MERCER County was formed from an old Indian territory, April 1, 1820. Fort Recovery
is the site of St. Clair's defeat and of Anthony Wayne's victory. Rockfort is the spot
where Wayne's army, going north, crossed the St. Mary's river. Celina, the county seat,
is situated on the Grand Reservoir, one of the largest artificial lakes in existence.
Mercer County was represented in summer session by twenty-three students. Elizabeth Hedrick
was a member of the Y. W. C. A. Cabinet; Hattie Pifer was a member of the Philharmonic Club;
and Harold Lutz took part in the Masque presented by the summer students.
OU all know Highland County, the most elevated region in the southern part of Ohio.
Yes, our topography shows elevation but this is only symbolic of our inward progress.
Highland has progressed along many lines. This was the center from which emanated
the crusade which reached its climax in 1920 — Prohibition. Not only are we noted for the spirit
of the crusade, but for the spirit of creation. The bells manufactured in our county seat ring
out the tale of our industrial progress, and the products of our textile factory, the largest of its
kind in the world, proclaim also our achievements.
Many of Highland's sons and daughters have served to prove her progress. Senator J . B. Foraker
and Gov. Allen Trimble pointed with pride to the fact that this was their birth-place, and here
the home of Mother Thompson is considered a national shrine. What would Miami University
be without Dean Minnich? He is also proud of his connection with Highland County.
But we haven't yet mentioned all the great people of whom Highland will one day boast. In
our roster you will find the names of thirty progressive young people who are at Miami this
year. What does this mean? It means that Highland County, the county of aforementioned
fame, is undoubtedly in line for future recognition.
Is not our proof conclusive that "Highland sits on her seven hills and from this eminence rules?"
FROM an early date Preble County has contributed largely to the student body of Miami
University. Among its early graduates we number such well-known figures as Dr. Ferguson
of Camden, Abner Haines of Eaton, common pleas judge and state senator, and the late
Colonel Harris, former governor of Ohio, besides a host of others who are doing the world's work
in various ways.
At present there are fifty-two students enrolled from Preble. Walter Roberts represents his
county on the Summer Student staff, Naomi Patton on the Student Council, and Hubert Conarroe
is the composer of the summer school song. Preble County has on the executive staff, Miss
Habekost, Acting Dean of Women, and Mr. Brandenburg, librarian; on the educational staff,
C. S. Bungcr, Principal of the McGuffey School, H. C. Brill, Professor of Chemistry, C. A. Math-
eny, Instructor in Agriculture, H. H. Benckc, Professor of Economics, Dr. Upham, Professor
of English, and John O'Leary, Instructor in Mathematics.
Preble County stands high educationally, particularly for the excellence of its rural schools.
Our county superintendent, Mr. Fogarty, is known not only throughout Ohio, but in many other
states, for he has made centralization not a dream, but a successful reality.
ADAMS County was named in honor of the second president of the United States, and due
to the first letter of its name, it always comes first in the lists of the counties of Ohio;
and also, because of its energetic people, it takes the lead in all things except in raising
"cane," as did Adam of Old.
Even the Mound Builders recognized the importance of Adams County, for they left there one
of their masterpieces of art, the historic Serpent Mound, which is visited yearly by people from
all parts of the United States.
Adams County is not only important in an archaeological sense, but it also has furnished Ohio
one of its earliest chief executives, Governor Kirker. Not only has it furnished a governor, but
even as late as this summer it has furnished Miami with twenty-three students.
OW that the enthusiastic cheers for Allen County have momentarily subsided, we'll take
this occasion to say that, contrary to the common belief, we aren't as yet listed in the
Hall of Fame. However, the fame of Allen County is an accepted fact. To those inter-
ested in educational progress our county needs no introductory words. Since the early pioneer
days when the faint light of learning was first fostered in Lima, our county seat, we have always
been among the first to advance better educational movements and to establish American ideals.
And now our torch of education flames high!
The influence from Miami has been obvious. There are thirty students in this year's quota,
including thirteen Lima Normal School graduates. Each year marks an increase of students
and a marked increase of enthusiasm; incidentally, we have nominated our cheer-leader — the
one and only specimen of Allen County manhood present.
The Countv of Allen always expresses determination and pep. The common belief that we were
in the Hall of Fame, proves that we have this essence of success.

((A yfULTUM in parvum," that
JL V JL is why Fayette County de-
serves a place in the Sum-
mer Student. It is one of the ban-
ner counties of Ohio, being known
for rich farm lands and high-grade
live stock. The standard of her
teachers is equal to any in the world
and their influence has made possi-
ble the possession of one of the
finest art collections in the state.
We are proud of Fayette County
and of her men in service every-
This is the way we'll start our ball,
Green County is the greatest of all.
Horace Mann founded Antioch,
Fess helped it grow,
Till we sent him to Congress
His wisdom to show.
Reid went to England, ambassador to be;
Nesbit wrote "Your Flag," known over the sea.
Wilberforce University is of national fame ;
Of the Theological seminary we may say the same.
The Orphans' Home, known as the O. S. S. O.,
Shelters nine hundred children and continues to grow.
The "H. and A." cordage leads the world,
While no other county a tool mill affords.
Not only in men and factories great,
But in prize-winning live stock we lead the whole state.
State, national, and even world prizes go
For the hogs, sheep, and cattle Green County men grow.
In sending men to the late World War,
Our county stood in the very fore.
So this is the way we'll end our story,
Green County has covered herself with glory.
LYING along the Ohio River is Brown County, from which has come many of the prominent
men of our nation. Here General Grant lived when a boy; Thomas L. Hamer practiced
law in Georgetown, the county seat, before he won fame in the Mexican war. The house
of the Reverend John Rankin, who helped many slaves on their way to freedom, still stands
facing the beautiful Kentucky hills.
There is reason to be proud of the fact that although a number of Brown County teachers
attended various other schools over the state, the representation at Miami exceeded that of any
other county. There were sixty enrolled in the Summer School of 1920.
Although Brown County cannot boast of a large population, being a strictly agricultural section
its standards of education arc high. It has long been noted for the number of splendid teachers
it has furnished, not only for its own schools, but also for those of the largest cities of Ohio and the
MIAMI! Well, we guess! The name's enough; don't you think? To get our name we
went back to the Indian, and from his language took the word for mother, because Miami
County is the mother of the many advantages and opportunities we have. We like to
think of Miami University as a larger foster mother with the spirit and opportunities and possi-
bilities for big things.
But the name's not all ! Miami County can boast of one of the best County Superintendents
to be found anywhere, the best equipped rural school in the state, and a wide-awake County
Normal. Then, too, it is the "garden spot" — of the world, we were going to say, but will com-
promise by saying — of Ohio !
Any couple wishing to settle down would find Miami County an ideal place in which to live.
The soil is exceedingly fertile. Anything "growable" can be produced. In our county tobacco
plants grow as high as church steeples (small ones) and the smoke from the plants extends beyond
the tallest chimneys. Special shovels are needed to dig our potatoes. The farmer merely sits
by and watches the crops grow and then gives part of them to his city neighbors. (Note: We
are not representing any land agency.) Look us up! We're on the map.
BUTLER County needs no introduction, for her products are found in every nook and corner
of the world. Her manufacturing plants produce articles ranging from gigantic iron safes
to boxes of the most dainty stationery. And when it comes to men of distinction, she
has them too. Why, it was only a few days ago that James Cox, a Butler County boy, was
nominated for President. And that's not all. Butler County can boast of three of the best
institutions of learning in the Middle West, not to say of her vast stretches of fertile land on
either side of the beautiful Miami River. It's a blessing to live and grow in a county so rich
in the things that tend to make life better, and where one can enjoy the beauty of God's handiwork
on every side. We're proud of good old Butler County; you know we are!
Scioto, a region of hill and of plain,
Is a county in which grows the richest of grain;
It also has fruits and flowers most fair;
The Ohio flows by — and at Portsmouth is where
The Scioto joins it — thus making a view
That is famed for its beauty the whole country through.
Shoe factories are many,
And flour mills, too;
Steel and iron are there made ready for you.
We are true to our county;
And since loyalty rules,
We have come to Miami
To help Scioto's schools.
— R. A. R.
DID you ever see such a dignified group? But please do not attribute that to any par-
ticular virtue in us; nothing other than dignity and pride could be felt by those who come
from such an ancient and renowned county as old Clermont. Even in the early days our
forefathers were so well known that a new county had to be organized — Clermont, the eighth
in the Northwest district. But the pioneers did not leave the best things behind at the Cumber-
land Gap, for they brought with them their institutions — the schools and churches. The oldest
Methodist Church of Ohio, and possibly the oldest one organized in the Northwest territory, is
to be found at Milford. In the old cemetery at Bethel stands a monument with an epitaph
carved upon it, written by John Greenleaf Whittier. This monument marks the resting place
of Thomas Morris, a promoter in the abolition of slavery. Ours is a fighting county, as the
name of General Grant can testify.
But you must not get the idea that we are depending on ancestral connections and ancient glories
to help us through "life's fitful fever." Look again at our Miami representation, and see how
the teachers of old Clermont are striving to turn out products of the schools inferior to none.
